“Always Late (with Your Kisses)” is a song co-written and recorded by American country music artist Lefty Frizzell. It was the fifth single released from his 1951/1952 album Listen to Lefty. It peaked at number one in 1951 and became his fourth release to hit the top.

During early 1951, Lefty Frizzell is enjoying the success followed by the smash hit debut: If You’ve Got the Money (I’ve Got the Time). By this time, Frizzell and Hank Williams are the biggest names in country music. Frizzell would meet for another session on May 24, which capped off a single. Always Late (With Your Kisses) with the flip-side Mom and Dad’s Waltz would be released in July and in August the single rose to the #1 slot on the US Country chart. The songs have since become instant Lefty classics.

Lefty Frizzell – Always Late (With Your Kisses) Lyrics

Always late with your kisses
Won’t you come to my arms sweet darlin’ and stay
Always late with your kisses
Why, oh why do you want to do me this way?

How long do you think I can wait
When you know you’re always late?
Always late with your kisses
Why, oh why do you want to do me this way?

Always late with your kisses
Won’t you come to my arms sweet darlin’ and stay?
Always late with your kisses
Why, oh why do you want to do me this way?

How long do you think I can wait
When you know you’re always late?
Always late with your kisses
Why, why, why do you want to do me this way?
